    Miroku stock care

    For around 10 years without any problems. Just apply after the oil finishing job is completed and DRY. Trade Secrets or CCL products for me.

    Miroku stock care

    Doesn't leave a residue on my Browning/Gureini stocks, as I said spray onto a micofiber cloth rub over wood and leave for a few minutes, then go over with a clean cloth. They never feel sticky to me even in this heatwave we are having here at the moment, I suppose if your using the hard bees wax polish that could happen

    Does the wax component leave a residue, or does it soak into the wood entirely? My pet peeve with wax-related products is that they can still get sticky after application, especially in tropical temperatures.

    Miroku stock care

    If you use just a tiny drop of oil at a time ,and rub it in with the palm of your hand ( the fleshy bit under your thumb is best ) until it has all gone and your skin is hot from friction , pop it in the gun safe over night and you’ll be fine to use it the next day . What are you wanting to achieve with your stock ? Maintenance or a deeper shine or darker colour ? A lot of stock care comes down to personal preference .

    Has anyone else used WoodSilk, do you need to rub down or just keep building up layers?

    I use a spray called wood silk, contains no silicones but has bees wax. Find it less hassle than oil and leaves a nice finish. Spray on a mico fibre and give the stock a wipe over

    I'm not suprised the way the NRA handled it if what I hear is right

    after care is on the CCL leaflet, it says leave at least a week before use, so that's probably your answer

    Thanks for your help and advice, after rubbing small quantities of oil, eg CCL, on stock how long before it can go back in slip

    I think so, there is bad karma between old and new leading to lack of cooperation allegedly.

    Artists grade part polymerized linseed oil works well but any of the 'secret recipe' gun stock oils will be just as good. Always use tiny amounts as Martin says above. Personally I'd never use wax on an oiled stock although it seems a popular thing in America. Keep in mind that the wax would have to be removed before adding more oil to the wood and since wax doesn't do anything oil doesn't already do it seems to me an exercise in futility.

    Miroku stock care

    Hi. No personal experience with a Miroku stock, but I've given some TLC to other stocks of fellow shooters, mostly Brownings. If you want to completely re-do the finish, I'd recommend sanding and building up the finish of your choice by adding thin layers. One after the other is dry, polishing in between to rid any imperfections. I think boiled linseed oil would best be used as opposed to raw linseed oil, but linseed oil (same for Tung oil) takes many many layers if you want a really nice finish. For 'maintenance' I'd (clean thoroughly and then) use the same product that was on there and apply a thin coat, polish down with microfilm, 000 steel wool or just a really vigorous rub with cotton. Personally I like a glossy looking finish with a tad less work, and Tru-Oil ticks those boxes. Wouldn't use it on an existing finish (that wasn't tru-oil to begin with), but at least if you do it yourself you always know what's on there.

    Miroku stock care

    I use a tiny drop of CCL Stock Conditioning oil rubbed in with the palm of my hand on both Of Gd 5 Mirokus and my K80 . I don’t over oil , I don’t want an “English “ shiny mirror finish The same bottle has been in use for 10 years minimum . It’s not a “ sealed stock “ . https://www.greenfieldguns.com/product/ccl-gunstock-conditioning-oil-50ml-2/ ps don’t overdo it , the last thing you want is sticky gunge building up between wood and steel . A drop once in a while is all that is needed .

    What advice would members give on care of a Grade 5 Miroku stock? I have been told everything from raw linseed oil to quality furniture wax. Is it a sealed or permeable factory finish?

    Is this the ground that the NRA wouldn't renew the lease with the previous occupier

    Pricey as ever though.

    More about the fact that the ground has just changed ownership this week and now being run by NRA. There is an open club shoot this Sunday.

    Yes, being Plod they probably want to set a good example

    Bisley - Cottesloe Heath Police Shoot Cancelled

    Probably don't want the hassle of some not social distancing the correct way, and pictures up on social media criticising due to it being a 'Police shoot'

    Sporting Shoots 2020

    Gatton Bottom for me on Sunday, I think the enforced break has done me some good as I put in a score of 89 (was robbed of 1 point by a scorer too) An enjoyable shoot, yellow clays over yellow-ish canary grass made life interesting around about stand 4, we put off stand 1 until last, as it looked too scary to start on, but it was OK in the end.

    Agreed Sian, the loss of a nice little shoot for one year only (hopefully)

    Bisley - Cottesloe Heath Police Shoot Cancelled

    It’s a shame as they could social distance it like the other shoots.
  26. Cottesloe Heath Police Shoot on 14th Aug has been cancelled, despite still being advertised on the Bisley Events website.

    Sporting Shoots 2020

    Absolutely . Voice concerns. Some will listen , some will take offence because they're egos are massive. If they're the latter then I don't tend to go often. I'll look elsewhere and only use those grounds when absolutely necessary. I'm out to have fun not be constantly wound up by crap setting. Gunsite is 96 miles each way for us. But have NEVER been to a bad shoot or had a reason to moan . So we go when we can. Jasper.

    Sporting Shoots 2020

    I wish Gunsite was nearer to us, have shot it twice and thoroughly enjoyed it, as you say, no stupid targets you can’t see, all hittable and sensible but it’s a very long way for us. Ive decided I’m joining Sians gang! I do have a word in the owners ear sometimes or send in an email re a shoot now and again but I think if we don’t stand up and voice our concerns (I think it can be dangerous when you have high hedges/fences in front of you when you’re short) nothing will change.
